CAAB January FB Progressive Challenge

Hello everyone! I'm back with a card toddy for the Cute As A Button Progressive Facebook Group Challenge using May The Holy Spirit Be With You. This comes as a pack of two images. I love the images. There is still a little time left to pop over, see all the details in the album section and join in the challenge. There is also a Cute As A Button Blog Challenge. This month challenge #30 is themed fairies not much time left to enter. We'd love you to join in the fun.

I've coloured them in mainly Rembrandt Aquarell Pencils. The background has been created with distress inks. Stamped embossed stars and and homemade texture paste planet (that they are stood on.) The sentiment is from a Tatty Twinkle CD rom.



My seven year old daughter wanted to create a card using this image too. So here it is. She has only used one of the images and created the background herself and added lots of gems to represents planets and stars. She said that she is stood with her legs behind a hill on a moon planet. The sentiment on her card is I think a digital stamp created by Tracy Wray from Crafty Cats 957 Designs Digital Stamps.

ABB Selfie Bear and Bird Easel Card

Hello everyone! I'm stopping by with a easel card I've made using a adorable Art By Barb Designs digital stamp called Selfie Bear and Bird. This image can be found in the Selfie Snapshots Collection. I love this collection so much.

I've coloured the image using coloured Biro Ball Point Pens. I think the effect it creates looks good for creating fluffy fur. I've used lots of recycled materials on this card. The base card is thick box card which I stenciled writing on and tore of lots of the card to show some of the under/inner of the card. Which adds a great textural element. I've used a clock die, a rectangle stitched effect die, a swirl die and flower dies. Using brown packing paper I stamped and embossed elements to create more interest and layers to the background. I made the sentiment using computer text to fit with the image. I made the beads by rolling up paper and added a wing charm to it which I've recycled from a old card I made. I hope that you like my card.



There are always lots of fun things happening on Art By Barb Facebook group. There's a Colour Along With A Child Challenge where the image used can be requested for free on the grounds that you play along with the challenge. There are special offers and exclusive images on the group. Also new today there is a beautiful flowers cupcake freebie digital stamp that can be found in the group too. We would love it if you stopped by to join this fabulous group.
